Content: Willy is renowned for painting stories from the Tingari Dreaming Song Cycle and the land around Haast's Bluff, Lake Mackay and Lake McDonald.  Some of the Tingari stories are depicted by concentric circles linked by parallel lines with the spaces between them filled with bright colours.  Willy also paints wavy lines across a canvas filled with dots which represent the sandhills and a fierce hailstorm that killed ancestral Tingari men during the Dreamtime.
